Like mine for instance.  And I can't upload one either.

Hellfire, I think mine's gone, too.  Whelp, time for a change, I guess.

[ETA]

I think uploading is broken.  Uploaded a new avatar, and I got nothin'.

[ETA2]

Same with using a link.  Okay, what the fuck?

So any update on the fact that some of us are locked out of avatars?

Ironbite-cause it's a little annoying.

Looks like even more avatars are broken.

Threw Sigma a question on tumblr.  Hopefully she sees it.

I've been trying to fix it from my end, unsuccessfully. Asked Kradorex for help.

Hello everyone,

The avatar issue should be corrected. The issue was two items:

Firstly, there was a cryptography certificate that had accidentally expired that saw https://forums.fstdt.net (where avatars are sourced from) being unavailable for most people. This was corrected by updating the certificate and adding it to the certificate monitoring system.

Secondly, avatar uploads had fallen back to a former filesystem (directory/folder) location, so uploads were being sent to the wrong location, thus uploads weren't completing. This has been re-configured correctly.

Any upload attempts made in the meantime during the duration of this issue should be re-uploaded or re-set.
